Fortnite leaks point to in-game comic books coming soon

After featuring a slew of both Marvel and DC comic book heroes over the last few months, if recent leaks are to be believed, Fortnite may soon be getting some actual, readable, in-game comic books.

If you’ve been playing Fortnite for the past couple of years, you’ll know that superheroes are nothing new for the popular battle royale. The game’s Infinity War and Endgame crossover events were some of the most well known, and recently both Aquaman and Captain America were added to the game as playable characters.

Because of the widespread popularity of these crossovers, it’s really no surprise that Epic Games would want to continue their association with comic books and superheroes as much as possible. Now, it seems like they are ready to take that association a step further than some people might have expected.

According to recent leaks, the BR may soon be getting an in-game comic book and comic book reader. The news comes the way of credible Fortnite leaker HYPEX, who confirmed the news via his Twitter account.

According to HYPEX, there’s now a file in the game referencing a “ComicReader” and that a few days before it was added, a source told him that there would indeed be comic books coming to the game in some form.

In addition to this file, footage of the comic book menu has been found if you switch Xbox accounts while playing the game. There’s obviously no comic book uploaded to the game right now, however, you can still see the animation and UI associated with it.

The inclusion of in-game comic books is a bit on the unusual side for Fortnite, however, not completely out of left field. While they wouldn’t really add anything to the game, they would keep players entertained for a bit.

It would also be super simple for Epic to tie the comic books into the game somehow. They could either make an item that can only be obtained by reading each comic or they could make the comics themselves findable items in-game.

Either way, it’ll be interesting for fans to see how they’re implemented into the battle royale in the coming months.

Fortnite Season 5 is upon us, and it’s got some very exciting things in store – but the one thing fans are most looking forward to is the leaked crossover with The Mandalorian.

Following the success of Season 4’s Nexus War, which introduced skins and weapons based on some of Marvel’s most beloved superheroes and villains including Storm and Venom, Fortnite seems to be once again teaming up with another Disney-owned franchise, Star Wars.

Recent posts from a number of leakers including ShiinaBR and others have suggested a crossover with The Mandalorian is imminent, with bounty hunter Din Djarin and the adorable viral sensation Baby Yoda both being a part of the major Season 5 update.

There’s even been a leaked advertisement for the Battle Pass, which shows off the incoming Mandalorian skin accompanied by a little Baby Yoda, which is presumed to be another Back Bling cosmetic like Rocket Racoon, from Guardians of the Galaxy.

How to get The Mandalorian Fortnite skin

We won’t know exactly how to unlock the new Mandalorian secret skin and accompanying Baby Yoda Back Bling cosmetic until Season 5 drops on December 2, but we can definitely speculate.

In previous seasons, featured skins have been unlocked when players complete Battle Pass challenges. It’s likely that The Mandalorian skin will be acquired through a similar unlock method. It will look something like this:

  1. Load up Fortnite Battle Royale.
  2. Head into the Battle Pass menu.
  3. Access the Battle Pass challenges screen, and wait for the relevant challenges to appear.
  4. Once they’ve been made available, it’s down to you to complete them.

We’ll update this page as soon as we know how to unlock these new cosmetics, so keep an eye out.

When does Fortnite Season 5 start?

Fortnite has a lot to live up to after Season 4. It saw the introduction of a number of Marvel heroes as well as the Devourer of Worlds, Galactus, for an epic Nexus War finale event.

Season 5 will kick off on December 2, although an exact time hasn’t been confirmed. It’s also been hinted by dataminers that there will be another Black Hole style blackout to bridge the gap between the end of Season 4 and the beginning of Season 5.

It’s not expected that the whole season will be themed around The Mandalorian, unlike the previous Marvel-focused Season 4, but it looks like it will likely feature enough Star Wars content to keep fans of the galaxy far, far away happy.

Season 5 also brings with it the arrival of the new Fortnite Crew membership, which includes the Battle Pass, V-Bucks, exclusive skins, and other monthly benefits for a set price.
